Ladies. Gentlemen. Stripes.

Last night was great. I mean really, really great. I can't ever recall sticking my finger in so many people's faces in such a short period of time. It was a three hour party, and it was the best one of my life. As I was driving home from Riverside after our boys once again exposed Luongo for the fraud he is, I threw on the greatest song ever written.



The lyrics don't do Mr. Delp justice - but there is one verse that stuck out to me.

So many people have come and gone
Their faces fade as the years go by
Yet I still recall as I wander on
As clear as the sun in the summer sky


There is no collection of people that know the suffering Bruins fans have endured the last 39 years moreso than the group in this forum. Too many men. Petr Klima. Mayday. Tim Taylor. Scott Walker. 3-0. While the details of each series aren't exactly fresh in our memories, the pain is reinforced tenfold every time the Bruins of the past have found a way to lose in increasingly heartbreaking fashion.

There are 60 minutes standing between the Bruins and both the erasure and validation of all these hardships.

Wednesday, June 15 2011 has the chance to be the greatest day of many of our lives - certainly mine. In the way stand a greasy I-talian with a glove made of provolone, a whiny, emo dirtbag who disgraces this great nation, and a couple of ginger Swedish meatballs.

Wednesday, we will not be denied. Tim Thomas, David Krejci, Zdeno Chara, Milan Lucic, Dennis Seidenberg, Patrice Bergeron, Andrew Ference, Brad Marchand, and, in his last NHL game, Mark Recchi will not fucking be denied. Wednesday, we rape and pillage the city of Vancouver with our massive hockey schlongs.

Protect the Civic. Kill the Canucks. Win the game. Bring home Lord Stanley's Cup.

I said this just before game 3. NOTHING IS OVER.


Thomas will be as huge in game 3 as he wasn't in game 2. Ryder and Seguin - who both played very well in game 2 - will find the back of the net. Lucic might kill someone.

Win this game.

This has been one of the stranger years of my life. Lots of highs, lots of lows, everything in between. Through it all, RMPS has always been there for me.

There's not much left to be said. The Bruins have a chance, in a winner take all game, to win the Stanley Cup. Something we've all wanted to see for most (or all) of our lives.

I can't think of a team more deserving than this years Boston Bruins. I can't think of a fan base more deserving than the friends I've made in here.

To quote one of my favorite bands, H2O -

No one said it was gonna be easy, but I'm not afraid to try. With the odds stacked up against me I would have to fight. One Life. One Chance, Gotta do it right.

One game. One chance.

It's been a great season guys.

Go B's

That's why I thought it was a hip injury or something like that. It also looked like he couldn't lift his left leg up to get onto the bench. Kesler had to support it up.

Last night's events prompt my first post on SoSH as this story is worthy of sharing. My son is 10, absolutely loves playing almost any sport (including hockey, one of his favorites) be it in a league or just pick-up with friends. He enjoys also going to see his siblings' and friends' games as well as Red Sox, Sea Dogs and other pro and semi-pro games, BUT does not yet appreciate the thrill of really following "your" team through a season, or through the years, and does not like to watch sports on television despite my gentle encouraging.

Last night, for the first time ever, he was the one to remind me that there was a B's game on TV. I was busy helping his older sisters with homework and had not yet gotten around to putting the game on. It was near bedtime for him so I asked if he wanted to watch a bit with me before bed. He agreed, only the second time he has done so and the first was years ago. I let him watch a total of a little over 5 minutes of game-time and we saw all four first-period goals, the first of which came about 30 seconds after we began to watch. I was blown away by our luck and immediately dubbed him the Bruins' Lucky Leprechaun. He can not stop talking about how thrilling watching the B's was - "Wow Dad you were right, this (NHL playoff hockey) is great!" "It was so sweet!" "Epic!" He now can't wait for game 7 and plans to watch the entire game with me. Neither can I, and now for one more precious reason than I otherwise would. Win it for my boy, Lucky Leprechaun, the latest and to me greatest B's fan ever!

This is it. Holy hell. I have no fingernails left. Nothing much more to be said, other than the bruins represent all that is good in the [hockey] world and that the nucks are the toal opposite. Protect the Civic. Win.

Also, I just finished my first year of law school and my friends thought I was absolutely nuts for 2 reasons: 1) actually making time to watch sports and 2) choosing to watch the Bruins over the Celtics (I had to prioritize). Well, for those of you (can I say us?) who have been following the team closely this year, you knew there was something special. Even through the doldrums of the late winter skid, this team defied expectations (both good and bad) at every opportunity. When the stakes go up in the playoffs and everything is magnified, this team got their shit together like PC and all of us hoped they would. Really, the way this team is playing is the only way it can win big - no rhyme or reason --> a blowout one night, then a 1-0 nailbiter the next.

Well gentlemen, I'm here to tell you that I believe. Yes, I believe that G7 will be a conservatively played low scoring game. You're scared you say because these scorelines haven't favored us recently? Realness says "fuck off nancy."

VAN has no pride in their team, nor should they. Where would a Nucks fan have to go outside, grab a lawnchair, and defend his high-performance vehicle? PSK says "Protect the Civic."

It's time. It's our time. I'm freaking out, and this is what I do to contain myself why maintaining a composed appearance in the office.

I grew up in central MA and root for the Bruins just because they're from Boston. Not a hockey fan, though I've been wrapped up in the excitement of these last couple series and have enjoyed watching them.

For you guys who are real Bruins fans, I'm really pulling for you. 39 years is too long.

Marchand just shrugged off the moment.

"It was just heat of the moment, that stuff happens," the rookie said after Game 6.

Did Sedin say something to provoke Marchand?

"No, he didn't say anything before. He was just right there. ... He didn't say anything, he was just kind of taking it," the Bruins winger said.

Why did Marchand keep punching him then?

"Because I felt like it," Marchand said


Follow Marchand's lead. Rip the throats out of these cowards.

I think Hansen will get the bump up to the second line to take Raymond's spot. We'll see.

This makes more sense actually. Vigneault has no faith in Bolduc, and would probably rather re-insert Tambellini.

Hi, I'd like an order of Luongo Tambellini, please?

Hey Cavemen,
Sharpen up your sticks
We'll drive that wooly mammoth
right off the cliff!

(Luongo being the greasy wooly mammoth)

Now cavemen,
gather round the flames
we'll eat the meat
and divide up what remains

Chorus:
Rejoice!
Cavemen Rejoice!
Rejoice!
Cavemen Rejoice!

Hey Cavemen
Now that we are a team
We'll attack those other cavemen (vancouver)
across the stream

We'll sneak up
ready for a fight
We'll steal their skins and weapons (civics and mothers)
in the dead of night

Repeat Chorus

That the Bruins would win the stanley cup was destined. It was not predicted, but it was bound to happen. There is one among us who set the wheels in motion for this epic journey. Canoe trips, dodgeball, placing his nutsack in a vice,... from these humble beginnings, and in a fit of whimsy, a promise was made.

The gods of hockey heard the promise.

The gods of hockey were slowly drawn out from their slumbers, so that they might look upon mortal man, wearing a bra on his head and provoking their wrath.

The gods, however, were not angry. No.

The gods laughed and they said "let it be so" and it came to be.

Now, here we stand, collectively, before an epic game 7, as a team, as a city, as a message board.

For this we should all thank AMcGhie.

At least let us know which show you were getting dragged to so we can understand how much marital capital you're putting forward. I couldn't cancel dodgeball for game 5, so while the bruins were kicking ass, I was running around, having balls thrown at me while wearing a bra on my head (it was theme night, we went as the cast of Weird Science).




My fiancée went to art school. It comes with the territory. I just expect at least one or two nights a month to come completely out of left field. Sometimes that means no bruins unfortunately. I need to keep her happy(because so much else is going wrong for her). She did the same for me for all of 2008 when everything went wrong for me. I DvR'd the game thankfully and missed any spoilers before I was able to watch that. I'll do that again if needed.
Plus, she pulled off the Kelly Lebrock cut white tshirt and blue undies spectacularly.
No, I'm not posting pictures.
Edit: I'll post pictures if the bruins win the cup.


Personally, I have no interest in seeing photos of your fiancee but the promise was made and we now stand before the threshold of greatness.

I enjoyed this bit buried in CC's column:

Midway through the second period, the Bruins holding a 4-0 lead, Canucks general manager Mike Gillis made a point of coming up to me in the press box to dispute a Globe/boston.com story that ran Sunday, noting that the Canucks attempted to sell sponsorship rights to their upcoming (maybe) Stanley Cup parade.

“Totally false,’’ said Gillis, who played forward for the Bruins some 30 years ago. “And totally irresponsible. Never happened.’’

Gillis added that he felt it was a member of the Bruins’ organization who steered the story to the Globe (filed by staff writer Fluto Shinzawa). When asked if he could identify the person in the Boston organization who had steered the story, Gillis, an attorney, shrugged and walked back to the club’s box on the ninth-floor press level.

It has been a tremendous season, and I am glad that I got to see them all four times (including one pre-season game) here in Montreal, once in Boston, and once in Long Island. This story ends tomorrow with a win.

Capitalize early. Score goals. Protect the net/Civic.

Win Game 7. There's nothing else.

This was e-mailed to me this morning by a young man from New York City who I used to work with, when I was doing social work. He hates Boston sports.

TODAY IS JUNE 14, 2011. ON THIS DAY, 17 YEARS AGO, THE NEW YORK RANGERS BEAT THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS IN GAME 7 OF THE STANLEY CUP FINALS; HENCE IT IS NOT A VERY FONDLY REMEMBERED DAY DAY IN THE CITY OF VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA. THIS WAS THE RANGERS' FIRST STANLEY CUP VICTORY IN 54 YEARS.
TOMORROW NIGHT AT 8:00 P.M. THE BOSTON BRUINS SHALL GO TO VANCOUVER AND WIN GAME 7 OF THE STANLEY CUP FINALS FOR THEIR FIRST VICTORY IN 39 YEARS. NOT AS LONG A DROUGHT AS THE RANGERS, BUT LONG ENOUGH.

THE STANLEY CUP SHALL NEVER ENTER STANLEY PARK, AND LORD FREDERICK STANLEY SHALL WEEP IN HEAVEN WHEN THE PUCK DROPS TOMORROW NIGHT.

THE RESIDENTS OF VANCOUVER WILL ENDURE MORE MISERY--WHETHER ITS FROM NEVER WINNING A STANLEY CUP OR HAVING TO DRIVE HOME OVER THAT UGLY BRIDGE WHICH THEY CONSIDER A LANDMARK!!!!!

I SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT THE CUISINE SERVED AT ROGERS ARENA DOES NOT CONSIST OF HOT DOGS AND HAMBURGERS, BUT OF HUMAN FINGERS!!!!

THE UNITED STATES AMERICA SHALL NEVER EVER FORGET WHAT HAPPENED IN THE OLYMPIC ICE HOKEY GOLD MEDAL GAME LAST YEAR, WHERE THEY WENT TO VANCOUVER AND LOST TO CANADA. TOMORROW AMERICA SHALL TAKE HER REVENGE ON THE SAME ICE WHERE SHE LOST THE OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL!!!!! THE STANLEY CUP SHALL HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER YEAR BEFORE RETURNING TO CANADA!!!!

I AM INCLUDING A YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE 1994 STANLEY CUP PRESENTATION BECAUSE I FULLY EXPECT TO SEE A SIMILAR ONE TOMORROW NIGHT!!!! AS MUCH AS THE CITIES OF BOSTON AND NEW YORK HATE EACH OTHER, TOMORROW THEY SHALL EACH HAVE BEATEN THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS IN GAME 7 OF A STANLEY CUP FINALS!!!!!
